Great grandfather Napoleon Bonaparte McMullen born in 1865, lived mostly in Trinity Co, Texas. We believe he was born in Mississippi, perhaps Vicksburg area.
Any information would be appreciated.

I am the great grandaughter of Napoleon. I am searching for his grandparents. I have his parents as being John McMullen b. around 1823 in NC and Catherine Baskett b. 12-27-1823 in AL. I am unsure about the places of birth. My line is John to Napoleon (NB as he was known as) to Wade Edward to Olen Virgil Ray (Bobby) McMullen. My grandmother Lydia Jane Eddington, wife of Wade, gave me info that John (NB's father) was born in GA but an 1850 Lauderdale Co. AL census shows him as being born in NC. She had also told me that Catherine (Katie) Baskett was full blood German. I had not been told where NB was born. What is your line? please email me at

Joan my husband's grandmother was a McMullen from Laudale Co. MS. She worked for years at East Mississippi Hospital in Meridan, Ms. Her first married was to David Harris Flowers. They divorced and after she retired she remarried a Ralph Ellis and they lived in Enterprise, MS.

She is burried at Collinsville.

Does any of this sound familar.

I am researching Sarah Jane McMullen who I think is an older sister to Napoleon. The 1880 census (which was done shortly after she was married) lists her parents birth places as Father-Mississippi and Mother-Alabama.

The 1880 census shows Catherine McMullin (notice spelling) with her son Napoleon. It lists Catherin's birthplace as Alabama and her parents birthplace as father-NC and mother SC. It lists Napoleon being born in Texas with his parents both being born in Alabama which conflists with what SJ McMullen's says. So unless they have different fathers, there is some discrepency to where their father was born.

In the 1900 US Census for Llano, Texas, it again lists S J McMullen parents' birth place as Mississippi for her father and Alabama for her mother. But it also lists her mother (Catherin McMullen)on that census as living with her at the time. The census lists Catherin's parents birth place as Alabama and I can't make out what her parents are, but I think it is says "Un" for unknown. It also shows that Catherin had 11 children born and only 4 living in 1900 (Sarah, Napoleon, and 2 others).

I don't have anything on Catherin's parents, but had the name Frank from somewhere. If you have anything more solid than that, please let me know.

hi I am Christel McMullen Patel! Nadine, Robert and Brenda who also replied to this thread are my cousins. I'm pretty sure that we are related. Some of our dates and spellings are not the same. However, I think we may be able to sort through some things and help you out. I posted a family tree on in 2000ish. Orvil Allen McMullen Sr. is my father we are direct descendants of John A McMullen, Napolean Bonaparte McMullen, and Athena McMullen. My current email is if you would like to compare notes.
